Abstract : The paper concerns the behavior of sequential predictors of finite sequences of 0's and 1's. The question naturally arises as to whether a predictor can achieve high scores on every sequence in some large subset of sequences that are decided a priori to be nonrandom. What prescribed sets of scores may be achieved, and how may they be achieved. What internal consistencies must be present in the set of sequences yielding high scores. This paper is addressed to these questions.
